Of course, obvious too. 1995--the worst year for the Dead. Even in the wake of the last tour, folks commented on how bad Jerry looked. It was clear he was back on heroin again.

I would bet that the band would have finally quit touring after the last shows---where was the fun? In the overflow audiences and the bad scenes? In a dying Jerry? In the August heat?

Jerry during the last show looks -extremely- decrepid, and in my eyes, almost scary. It was like he was already gone. It gives me goosebumps to think that the last line he sung was "Such a long long time to be gone, and a short time to be there" Has anyone else found this.. just weird?

I was sitting at a table in the late 80', he sat down, but was very pissy. Then the guest passes came in, once he ate a sandwich he was o.k., but never the less a rollercoaster ride when it came to Garcia, most guitar player, and myself for that matter. I'm surprizes we still have ears.

Yeah I find it extremely weird because Jerry didn't sing Box of Rain.

I think that what's worse about the show is the song that they open with. "I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive." and ending with "I will walk alone, by the black muddy river, and sing me a song of my own, sing me a song of my own."

"...this is the beginning of the end."

What a summer it was -- all the gate crashing, low energy, fading Jerry...

Wasn't it at Deer Creek, in the middle of Desolation Row when the gates were coming down Bobby sang, "...you don't belong here, you'd better leave..." ?

The 30th year -- what an ending.
